I have a question which I have been unable to solve for quiet a time now.. I would be really grateful if someone could tell me the proper solution to this problem.. The problem goes like this -- What is the minimum speed with which a person can throw a ball such that it crosses a long cylindrical object of radius R (placed with its axis perpendicular to plane of motion of the ball)?? Ignore the height of the person throwing the ball
Please give me an answer to the question..
